Who says the old ways aren't the best ways? Barrister’s Reserve® Spice is a slice of vintage Americana. Featuring notes of carnation, nutmeg, vanilla, and tonka bean, Spice is great for when you're looking for a bit of history. Your suave, dapper grandfather? He used soaps like this and smelled awesome doing it.
  • Rich, spicy scent that never goes out of style.
  • Absolute hard water tolerance.
  • Incredibly creamy, dense lather
  • Superlative slickness
  • Excellent post-shave feel

Net Wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA

Wet your shaving brush well, then swirl it around the jar for about 25 swirls or until a rich, creamy lather is formed. Continue building the lather by adding water (lots of it) and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

Note: This soap is very soft and may be easy to overload. If the lather seems thin or glue-like, continue to add water until a dense, creamy lather forms.

Spice soap

Great lather rich and thick, the scent is not overwhelming.

Larry Powers

Shockingly slick

The slickness on the reserve base is unreal... Lather is Protective and dense...its not hard to develop as long as care is taken not to overload your brush... Requires proper hydration... Give it enough water and you will be rewarded...the spice scent is wonderful... I consider myself a proud barrister and Mann fan boy

Consistently Excellent

This was the third purchase of this particular item. The base for the reserves is outstanding and I enjoy the scent, which is subjective.

Nostalgia in a Jar

The original Old Spice was my grandfather's scent of choice and Barrister and Mann does a fantastic job of reviving this fragrance for a new generation of traditional wet shavers! While the Barrister's Reserve line had been on my radar for some time, it was the inclusion of the free samples of aftershave with my B&M orders that finally convinced me that I needed to try the soaps. Thankfully my lovely wife made included both the Spice and Cool scents as part of my Valentine's Day gift and I couldn't be happier. The Barrister's Reserve soaps have a reputation as being a bit finicky when it comes to lathering but I have had no such trouble. While these soaps may not lather as readily as the Glissant or Excelsior base, they should not be too troublesome for experienced wet shavers. The single biggest suggestion I can make to people new to this soap base is to add plenty of water as you build your lather. The Reserve soaps provides an exemplary post-shave feel and my den will not be without these soaps in the future!
